Mary J. Blige


The popular musical is being adapted into big screen and producers reportedly want the soul singer to portray the erotic-club's owner.

Mary J. Blige is in talks to star in a big screen adaptation of hit Broadway musical "Rock of Ages". The popular stage production scored a number of award nominations last year and studio bosses at New Line Cinemas are hoping they will emulate the success when the film version hits cinemas next year.

Tom Cruise is rumored to be close to accepting a supporting role in the musical, which will also reportedly star Taylor Swift, and now producers are negotiating with soul queen Blige to come aboard. Blige is set to take the role of The Venus Club's owner while Cruise reportedly considered a role as bad-guy singer Stacee Jaxx.

The musical tells the tale of a couple who meet at a Los Angeles strip joint and fall in love, and features the music of 1980s legends Bon Jovi, Journey and Pat Benatar.
